p2, your savior or your achilles heel? Everything an Eclipse team needs to know about p2

in ECE, ECE2011, Video, p2, Eclipse
Eclipse

Back by popular demand, Ian and Pascal will present their award winning* EclipseCon 2011 talk.

The Eclipse provisioning platform (p2) has made it possible to scale the annual release train to over 2,000 plugins. While p2 provides possibilities that update manager never could, some teams have struggled with its adoption. During this talk we will discuss some of the pain points that project teams have faced when moving to p2, and discuss some best practices moving forward.
In particular, we will focus on:

1. Building a p2 repository
2. Version strategies for your plug-ins and features
3. Categorizing your components
4. The magic of composite repositories
5. Pooling your artifacts

*Ok, we didn't really win an award, but we had very positive feedback ;-).

Orion: Coding on the Web

Eclipse

With Orion the Eclipse platform team is building browser-based development tools designed to integrate well with other developer sites and resources at web scale. Our approach builds heavily on the architecture of the web (hyperlinks for tool navigation and RESTful interactions with services) and our UIs are minimal and task focused to promote more of a web experience and allow us to better use the native capabilities of today's modern browsers.

Since June the team has been self-hosting at orion.eclipse.org and we can now talk more convincingly about the pain points driving our next steps. This talk will demo the current state of Orion, and explain the vision of moving software development to the web as a web experience.

Let the sunshine in! News from the Dawn side of life

in ECE, ECE2011, EMF, Video, Eclipse
Eclipse

The importance of EMF for current and future software projects is undeniable. Thus is the importance for distributed and scalable model persistence, which is perfectly solved by CDO. But now it is time for the next step and to focus on the integration of modeling based user interfaces.

Dawn addresses this need and provides easy integration between EMF-based user interfaces and model repositories. It is focused on enhancing your existing UI with collaborative functions like real-time shared editing, conflict visualization and resolution, authentication, authorization, locking or web-based access to your models.

This talk will briefly introduce the main concepts of Dawn. This includes the basic principles, the Dawn runtime and the generation aspects of the framework. We will explore the main features released with the Indigo version of Dawn (1.0) and will have a look to the interesting feature plan on the road to Juno. A small demonstration will give you an impression how great it feels to be freed from the bounds of local model persistence and to dive into the ocean of true real-time collaborative modeling.

Pimp your productivity with Git, Gerrit, Hudson and Mylyn

The Git distributed versioning system is being increasingly adopted by the developer community. Using Git for version control makes Gerrit the natural choice for code reviews. Besides source code, requirements and build artifacts lay an important role in the development cycle which are often managed in Hudson and Bugzilla. While these tools enable exciting development process improvements, adapting to new workflows and learning how to push, pull and fetch can be daunting. Furthermore, switching between command line, web-browser and Eclipse-based tool interfaces breaks the flow.
For tasks, Mylyn already streamlines workflow by providing first-class integration with the IDE. The recent Mylyn project restructuring now enables the same integrated workflows for code reviews, builds and version control systems like Git. For example, a developer can use the Mylyn Task List to track a requirement. On task activation, the EGit Mylyn integration automatically branches managing the change in the workspace. Once a commit is pushed Gerrit stages the change, creates a code review and a Hudson build is triggered to execute tests. Meanwhile, the Mylyn Reviews project enables a team member to complete a code review and provide feedback to the developer, all without leaving the IDE. We will show how the tools available in the Mylyn project work together to seamlessly integrate development artifacts in Eclipse and provide traceability all the way from the requirement to the final merge into the production branch.
